Walking Conferences


Thursday, 16th
10.00 - 12.00

Site visit to Piazza San Marco and Olivetti shop

Guide: Elena Svalduz (Università degli studi di Padova).

 Meeting point: in front of Caffè Florian (10 a.m.)
The tour will finish at 12 a.m.

The site visit will explore the main transformation of Piazza San Marco in a long period of time, from the origins  to the 20th century when a new exhibition space was designed by Carlo Scarpa to become the so-called Negozio Olivetti. The “shop”, to be considered the masterpiece of the architect, has been restored and reopened to the public after more than one decade.
